BioTE® Q & A
When might I need hormone replacement therapy?
After the age of 30, hormone levels in men and women naturally decrease by 3-10% every year. Then when women reach menopause, hormone levels dramatically drop, causing a wide range of health problems.
As estrogen and progesterone levels decline, women are at risk of developing hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal atrophy, painful intercourse, and urinary incontinence. Loss of testosterone in men can lead to a low sex drive, erectile dysfunction (ED), and the loss of muscle mass and strength.
Men and women are both at risk of developing weak bones and osteoporosis. They may also gain weight (especially around their abdomen), struggle with memory problems, and feel fatigued. Hormonal changes also lead to anxiety, depression, and insomnia as well.
What is BioTE hormone replacement therapy?
You can eliminate the full range of symptoms caused by low hormones, restore your health, and prevent chronic diseases like osteoporosis by bringing your hormone levels back to normal with hormone replacement therapy (HRT).
Dr. Rosenblatt offers BioTE, which is a bioidentical hormone replacement treatment. Bioidentical hormones have the same molecular structure as the those naturally produced in your body. In other words, your body can’t tell the difference between bioidentical hormones and its own hormones, so the risk of side effects is minimal.
Before you begin treatment with BioTE, Dr. Rosenblatt runs a comprehensive blood panel to determine your hormone levels, then your HRT therapy is personalized based on those results to provide the dose you need.
What are the benefits of BioTE hormone replacement therapy?
BioTE is administered in the form of pellets that are formulated with your precise dose. The pellet is made by pressing natural, bioidentical hormones into cylinders that are about the size of a grain of rice.
Dr. Rosenblatt implants the pellet under your skin, where it continuously releases hormones to maintain optimal levels. This avoids the unhealthy roller coaster effect that happens with oral tablets or injections, which initially give you a surge of hormones that quickly tapers down to low levels.
Your BioTE pellet lasts three to six months, so you’ll get a new pellet inserted about two to four times a year. As a result, you don’t need to worry about remembering to take a daily pill or seeing the doctor for an injection.
